Best powerheads for 20 gal long nano?

I am just curious as to what you guys would use on my tank and what you guys use in yours

Post what your tank size is and how many and what you use...


I was looking at 2 koralia 240gph powerheads for my 20 gal long?

I would pass on the 240's and get two 425's.

I have two 425's in my regular length 20g and it's barely enough. You could even go to 550 probably if you get the angles right.

eBay is probably the cheapest, but if you want a regular store front, check out amazon.com, marinedepot.com or even petsolutions.com. ( I got mine at petsolutions, was alittle cheaper than the others at the time)

Just did some searching and yep, $23 for a 425 is pretty cheap.

Just don't forget, get 2 of them the same size one for each side of the tank.

I've ordered fish from: liveaquaria, petsoltuions, aquacon and reefs2go. Live aquaria is by far the best out of the bunch.

It's hard to find ORA online, at least for me. i think aquacon has them. Usually i get my ORA fish from my lfs.
